Antique New Haven Bee Hive Cathedral Clock Westminster Chimes Running? Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep it for yourself! This clock has a beautiful Beehive or Steeple look wood case on it. All the trim work is there as are the wood legs.The case has some minor finish loss and crazing across the entire case. The clock was made in the late 1920s by New Haven. Not sure what model clock this is. The wood case is made of mahogany. The rear wood door is securely attached to the case.
The knob is even still with it. The fabric is also in the door. Nice looking silver colored metal clock face. The numbers and minute marks are incised into the face.
The black hands match and look appropriate to the clock. The bezel is securely attached to the case by the hinge, a little tight at the hinge. The concave beveled glass is intact, no cracking or blistering. The metal ring that holds the glass in is starting to come loose.
Good l00king brass movement in the case. This clock has an 8 day movement. The pendulum that came with it looks appropriate to the clock. The clock comes with a key that will adjust the speed and wind the three springs.
The 3 springs feel sound when keyed. The New Haven name is impressed on the back plate of the movement. The last patent date year on the movement is 1923. The clock does chime on the quarter hours when run manually.
The clock is not striking the hours on the hour. The clock will run for a few minutes, but then stops.
So, the movement either needs a good cleaning, or a couple of bushings. If one of you does not acquire the clock in the near future, the clock will be going out to Clock Doc for servicing.
The clock stands 13-7/8" tall, by 9" across, by 7 wide. The clock face is 5.5 across. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.
